This 1982 Chevrolet C10 Restomod is an impressive custom machine. It has a sleek custom exterior, a comfy leather interior, and a fully adjustable air ride suspension. And under the hood is a torque-ready diesel motor. Oh yeah, this is the custom truck that will not only haul home some trophies, but it could tow the whole judge's pavilion if it wanted!
There was a serious investment in the Root Beer Brown paint, and it has the right metallic copper undertones to earn the Copper Tone nickname on the tailgate. This radiant luster also highlights the time that went into making sure the body panels were straight and crisp. So it looks amazing under our showroom lights, and it can stop traffic once you get it out in the sunshine. Plus, those MTW wheels look awesome in copper. And despite the large 20/22-inch front/rear size, they have been engineered nicely to tuck into the bodywork when you want to have that ideal low parking stance from the air ride. We also love how this one still hints at a diesel truck's true capabilities with liner paint in the bed if you were really thinking about doing a few chores in this custom pickup.
The interior gives you a terrific classic truck style. The seat is a detailed custom contoured piece finished in saddle tan leather that has the kind of look you'd get on a range-topping new truck today. It even has pillow-top stitching that is repeated on the door panels. The carpet, dash, and sun visors are also done to coordinate for a very cool and custom style. While it's unknown if the odometer reflects the full mileage, this one sure feels fresh inside. This is a driver's truck that included an upgraded wood-rimmed steering wheel on a tilt column. The dash panel surrounds you with the retro-style upgraded radio, factory A/C controls (compressor is removed), and a full Dakota Digital gauge panel. But one of our favorite features isn't even on the dash. The air ride system is controlled via a Bluetooth app (only one person can be connected at a time.) So you don't even necessarily have to be in the truck to dial in the stance on demand.
The engine bay has a nice look with details like upgraded air intake, exterior-matching paint, custom valve covers, and dual Optima red top batteries. But what should really have you excited is the powerhouse. This is the 6.2-liter diesel that's correct for the era but seldom seen these days. Some people may want to add a modern LS motor or maybe just a big turbo, and we absolutely get the appeal. But from day one, you have a robust and unique powerhouse, and in true lowrider form, you don't want to be going too fast because you want everyone to see you. But no matter how you choose to drive this one, upgrades like the TH400 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, four-link rear, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes make it a solid cruiser.
This is the cool custom that's different everywhere - including the powerhouse. So when you want a restomod of full distinction, you know this Chevy gets it right. Call now!
